New Turing Interest Groups span biodiversity monitoring to space science

Monday 14 Nov 2022

Scientists from a diverse range of disciplines come together to share ideas in nine new interest groups, announced by The Alan Turing Institute, today Monday 14 November.  

The groups, which enable researchers to gather around shared areas of interest in data science and AI, cover a wide range of topic areas including biodiversity monitoring, health equity and space science. 

The Alan Turing Institute created the interest groups to promote research collaboration and share knowledge. The groups help scientists to communicate emerging scientific concepts to a wider audience.  

In July 2022, a call for new interest groups was launched to a positive response. The call received a high number of applications from across the Turing’s university partners, including the Turing University Development Award universities.  

Donna Brown, Director of Academic Engagement at The Alan Turing Institute, said: “We’re pleased to announce such a variety of new Turing interest groups. These groups are instrumental in bringing people together from different disciplines and across sectors to share knowledge and collaborate on important topics. We look forward to seeing the new ideas for research collaboration and projects that these groups will spark.” 

The Interest Groups launched in 2022 are:
